Stretcher Bars – 1/2 Frame

Stretcher Bars – 1/2 Frame

$3.35$14.92 USD

Please note this is a listing for 1/2 a stretcher bar frame. You will need to purchase two 1/2 frames to make a complete frame. My frames may not fit together with other manufacturers frames.

Stretcher bars are inexpensive wooden embroidery frames in which the fabric can be pulled really tight. The end of the bars have teeth that you slot together to form a frame at any size that you require for your needlework. I highly recommend purchasing the brass thumb tacks which are stronger and sharper than office supplies thumb tacks or quilters thumb tacks.

Stretcher bars are inexpensive wooden embroidery frames in which the fabric can be pulled really tight. The end of the bars have teeth that you slot together to form a frame at any size that you require for your needlework. A local craftsman makes the stretcher bar frames for me; they are well made and great value for money.

I recommend the stretcher bar frames to work my hand embroidery kits in because they are very quick to assemble and the fabric stays taught in the frame. The frame can be used over and over and different length bars can be used together to create different size and shape frames.

You will require a packet of brass thumb tacks to pin the fabric to the frame. The brass thumb tacks are stronger and easier to push into the frame compared to the office supplies thumb tacks.

I also sell a hand tack kit which includes a tool to push the thumb tacks into the frame and a tool to remove the thumb tacks.

The Long and Short Stitch Embroidery book has a nice collection of flowers to embroider in the needle painting technique. The book does not have diagrams on how to stitch each petal and leaf of the flowers like you will get when you purchase one of my needle painting kits but it is a good book if you have worked a few of my designs and are now familiar with the technique and would like some more flower designs to stitch.

The blue chalk pencil is used to transfer a design from tracing paper to fabric.
Trace your design onto the velum tracing paper. Note that the design will be reversed when you iron the design onto the fabric.
Place the tracing paper with the design down against the cotton fabric and then iron evenly along the back of the tracing paper, applying firm pressure for about 6 to 8 pass-overs.
When you lift the tracing paper off the fabric you are left with a blue outline of your design. The transfer is permanent.

Corjac/EZ Tack Kit

$14.92$21.21 USD

This very useful kit for Stretcher Bar Frames includes a magnetic tool to push the thumb tacks into a wooden stretcher bar frame (the tack sits at the end of the magnetic pusher so you do not have to hold the tack in position) and a tool to remove the thumb tacks from the frame. The pushing tool and the tack remover have smooth red painted wood handles or hardwood handles.

The steel thumb tacks included in the kit are strong and the heads do not come off the pins easily unlike regular office supplies tacks. The steel tacks are not quite as sharp as the brass thumb tacks that are sold in a separate box so it is good to have both.

Chenille Needles have a large eye and a sharp point and are great for ribbon embroidery and as a plunging needle for goldwork embroidery. Chenille needles can also be used for heavy surface embroidery such as crewel and Mountmellick. I carry a variety packet in which the needles range from size 18 (largest) to size 24 (smallest) and I sell the No. 18 chenille needle separately for goldwork embroidery.
